And those who were seen dancing
were thought to be insane by those
who could not hear the music.
finished with doubt…..
inquiry for today~ may you lift to new soul levels…..
I thought the earth remembered me, she
took me back so tenderly, arranging
her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds. I slept
as never before, a stone
on the riverbed, nothing
between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated
light as moths among the branches
of the perfect trees. All night
I heard the small kingdoms breathing
around me, the insects, and the birds
who do their work in the darkness. All night
I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling
with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.
Brings to mind the Lakota “Ghost Dancers”
oh yes…..and how the mystics come to us……
